Protect Operational Technology (OT) and M2M connections
The need for secure automated file transfers and secure access to production sites has rapidly increased over the last few years. Learn how we can help with OT and M2M security.
Protect Operational Technology (OT) with Zero Trust and Just-in-Time Access
Maintenance and service engineers, as well as consultants, access industrial control systems (ICS) and production sites remotely from all over the world. Some of their typical tasks include:
- software upgrades
- scheduled maintenance
- remote systems management
- running diagnostics on programmable logic controllers (PLC)
Validating each access every time it is made and granting authorization just at the time of establishing the connection aligns well with modern security frameworks. Learn more about why the manufacturing industry should get serious about Zero Trust and Just-in-Time access here.
OT security must be robust, leave a solid audit trail and involve only the least privileged access for the task at hand. Such tasks must also be completed without leaving behind access credentials that could be exploited.
